Mowing continues

A friend asked me to show another clip of mowing in a different section of the farmyard.

Here it is.

I turned another corner and now heading west around the shed.

The ferns along the shed are past their beautiful spring green. Fall is near at hand.

Our light-filled days are shortening fast.

Enjoy the nice days that are given to us.

I mowed lawn today. About half done before I took a break.

Not a bad job when using the zero-turn mower.

Trees are the only things that bother me when I’m mowing. Low branches sneak up on me and too often I have to duck.

Early walk down the lane

Many of recent walks were down the road because the grass was dew-covered.

Today the farm lane was dry and Sunny decided that’s where we were heading.

He was on the lookout for deer as we saw one peek out of the corn one day this week.

No luck on the deer hunt.

But cranes flew overhead.

A nice early morning walk.

Mismatched subjects

I just realized I hadn’t blogged today.

After taking Sunny for a little walk I thought I’d take his photo next to the corn.

Sunny on the edge of the field.

The corn is growing and starting to tassel, but it still has a long way to go.

When I was a kid we cousins used to play hide-n-seek in a neighbor’s cornfield. We never got lost, but younger children have been known to get lost in a cornfield.

Once, I thought we lost our little Becky in the corn. Luckily, she knew to walk around the tall corn to get to the neighbors, but she sure scared me when she disappeared that day.

The neighbors weren’t home so one one could tell us our two-year-old had gone to play in their sandbox.

I wanted to tether her to me after that. She sure was one slippery child, also getting lost in the Museum of Science and Industry when she was five. I didn’t let go of her hand after we found her that day.

I let my mind wander today. See what happens when I don’t plan what to write in my blog.
